See you later; gotta bounce.

I know when you hear the word “parkour,” you’re all, “dude, parkour peaked with Casino Royale in 2006, what new spin could you possibly have to offer?” Answer: pogo sticks. 

Not just any pogo sticks, of course. We’re talking about devices custom-engineered for the newfangled sport of Xpogo, or Extreme Pogo—these things get up to 10 feet of air on a decent bounce. But don’t take my word for it; instead, check out “Cooligans,” a greatest-hits trick compilation filmed over the course of four spring-loaded months.   

And if that’s not enough hot pogo action for you, never fear: the Pogopalooza tour kicks off at the end of this month in Montpellier, France, making its way to Pittsburgh, Pa., in July and Helsingborg, Sweden, come August. Viva la pogolución! Or whatever these guys say.
